Following Addison’s cheating with Mark, Derek decided to accept Richard Webber’s offer of becoming Chief of Neurosurgery at Seattle Grace Hospital. He left his Brownstone for an Airstream trailer on a 40-acre rural property on Vashon Island and traded in his BMW for a Subaru Crosstrek. During his time there, Derek formed close ties with Meredith as well as her housemates Cristina, Alex, Izzie, and Bailey; though keeping away from Preston.
Professionally, Dr. Wilson is among the world’s finest neurosurgeons, performing risky procedures and saving Seattle Grace two million dollars each year through risky procedures.

He takes great joy in being the father to two beautiful daughters named Maggie and Lexie; is an enthusiastic fisherman; enjoys pizza; has an appetite for beer; plays basketball, golf, tennis and poker with friends regularly; is respected by Izzie and Meredith alike and makes them laugh regularly; overall is an admirable individual with a good heart and sense of humor!
